Leicestershire-based Cromwell Tools has chosen Howard Tenens to provide through the night distribution to its national branch network.
Tenens will be delivering more than 1,250 cages per week. Drivers are given sole responsibility of gaining access to the store, delivering the cages in a secure given location, processing returns, securing the site, and finally returning all empty cages and reverse logistics product back to Cromwell’s distribution centre.
Ross Wilson of Cromwell Tools said: “Overnight delivery to our branch network is an integral part of our business model and plays a huge role in delivering to our customer expectations. The outsourcing of this delivery function gives us a flexible platform from which we can grow and develop our offering, as well as ensuring we continue to operate safely and provide the level of service both our branches and customers, have come to expect.
“Having extensively reviewed our options, we are confident Howard Tenens represents an excellent partner to complement our business. Their focus on continuous improvement and technological capability, both match with our strategic direction and support our key transport drivers of visibility and control. We look forward to working with them and building a strong working relationship which can ultimately benefit both organisations”
